Brazil coach Tite has included Casemiro, Militao and Vinicius on his squad list for the upcoming 2021 Copa America. Rodrygo didn’t make the list but will almost certainly feature in Brazil’s team to play the Olympic Games.

Casemiro is an undisputed starter for Brazil and also a team leader. Militao could also have a chance to start regularly in the Copa America after his impressive performances for Real Madrid during the second half of the season, while Vinicius could ultimately come off the bench given the depth Brazil have upfront.

This could be an important tournament for Vinicius, who is still young but needs to take advantage of the opportunities he’s given to make a statement and showcase his talent on the international stage.

As always, Brazil will be one of the favorites to win the title, although teams like Argentina and Uruguay will also be candidates to come out victorious.
